First steps are done.. Washed, clay bar then wash again.. After that I cleaned the paint and will be doing the wax and polish tomorrow. Pics to come.

As for the clay bar, I was pleasantly surprised at how little came off, but glad I did it.. Most of the dirt came from the lower half of the driver side and passenger side doors.. Everything else was pretty clean.

Re: A good buffer

If you're applying glazer or sealant, do them before wax, in that order.

Re: A good buffer

So, the buffer attachment is great. Definitely made the job easier and faster and the results are as clear as day.

I used my fathers Ryobi drill that literally lasted two out of the three coats (sealant and polish). I did the clay by hand (obviously) then moved onto the paint cleaner which took a while. The polish was pretty thick so that took a little longer than expected, but the wax went on and off like butter.

As for the drill attachment, honestly, just a great all around purchase. I want to say it moves at 3/4 the speed of the actual drill so its easy to control and knocked at least 2.5 hours off of the whole job. The machine applies the wax evenly and didn't require any real pressure to coat the car. Sure, if you want to lean on it a little for fine scratches etc, I am sure you can without issue, but I didn't need to.

So, all in all, for $50, it makes a hell of a difference and cuts down on the amount of time it takes to give her a shine.
